Welcome to the LSQ’s WebHome

Since 1986, the Lafayette String Quartet has divided their time between entertaining audiences all over North America and Europe and teaching some of Canada’s finest young string players. Their residency at the University of Victoria is rich in local performances and community involvement. Their concerts in Canada and abroad are hailed as “Passionate, riviting, and with flawless ensemble.”

Indeed the LSQ are passionate about everything they do whether it is performing new music, delving into the great classics or giving masterclasses and workshops. Passion and commitment are the hallmark of the LSQ.

The Lafayette is the only all-female ensemble in the world to comprise the four original members – a distinct rarity, regardless of gender and regardless of profession.
